The West’s appreciation for Chinese bronzes started in the 20th Century. The Hallwyl Collection of small Chinese and Korean bronzes are displayed in two glass cases in the two galleries housing East Asian ceramics in the Hallwyl Museum. The display cases could be described as windows to the late Chinese Bronze Age and onwards to the 12th Century.
This pdf.publication will give context to the Hallwyl Collection of minor bronzes. The pdf publication highlights the objects in the collection as well as gives a presentation of Countess Wilhelmina von Hallwyl, founder of the Hallwyl museum and the Swedish engineer Orvar Karlbeck, who sold his collection of bronzes to the Countess in 1922.
